GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition Patch Released — Original Games Brought Back To PC

Rock­star Games has released title update 1.02 for Grand Theft Auto: The Tril­o­gy — The Defin­i­tive Edi­tion bring­ing a wide vari­ety of fix­es to the remas­ters. Rock­star also announced that they plan to rein­state the orig­i­nal ver­sions of GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas on PC. The stu­dio is also ask­ing fans to stop harass­ing the devel­op­ers on social media.

In a recent state­ment, Rock­star apol­o­gized to those who are deal­ing with prob­lems from their game: “We want to sin­cere­ly apol­o­gize to every­one who has encoun­tered issues play­ing these games. The Grand Theft Auto series–and the games that make up this icon­ic trilogy–are as spe­cial to us as we know they are to fans around the world. The updat­ed ver­sions of these clas­sic games did not launch in a state that meets our own stan­dards of qual­i­ty, or the stan­dards our fans have come to expect.”

With­in this state­ment Rock­star men­tioned how peo­ple were lash­ing out and harass­ing the stu­dio’s devel­op­ers across social media due to the Defin­i­tive Edi­tion’s issues. “We would kind­ly ask our com­mu­ni­ty to please main­tain a respect­ful and civ­il dis­course around this release as we work through these issues,” Rock­star said.

Last­ly, Rock­star stat­ed it will rein­state the orig­i­nal ver­sions of the tril­o­gy on the Rock­star Launch­er for PC users. All three games were removed from dig­i­tal stores ahead of the Defin­i­tive Edi­tion release. Rock­star did not men­tion if these titles would be com­ing back to consoles.

Every­one who pur­chas­es The Defin­i­tive Edi­tion on PC through June 30th, 2022 will get the clas­sic GTA titles trough the Rock­star Games Launch­er for free.
